There’s no such thing as enlightenment

This is probably the best thing I could say to any spiritual seeker to get them to stop fantasizing about something bigger or better over there and in the future. When all your nondual advaita zen buddhist day dreams finally come true you will indeed realize that it’s all been a sham. Enlightenment? Nope. En-human-ment …yes. This does not discount peak states- but peak states come and go. And this definitely does not discount the ongoing sense of peace confidence and fulfillment that comes with it- but when experienced continually this state ┬áis quite ordinary.
“Call off the Search” Papaji once famously said. Couldn’t agree more. But this too can be a trite statement. Usually the search gets called off after you have driven yourself mad f—– crazy with searching. Go figure.
